Dear colleagues,


The University of Bern (Switzerland) offers the following position. I am looking forward to your application.


Best regards,

Sönke Szidat



PhD Position in Environmental Chemistry



Carbonaceous particles comprise a large fraction of the atmospheric aerosol and, therefore, badly affect climate and human health. However, only a small fraction could be identified and apportioned to emission sources so far. For this purpose, measurements with accelerator mass spectrometry of the long-lived radioisotope 14C has become a unique and powerful tool. Your task will be to prepare aerosol filter samples and to perform the 14C measurements. This work includes the improvement of existing analytical procedures. Furthermore, you will apply the measurement results to the investigation of emissions sources in combination with other state-of-the-art techniques of ambient aerosol analysis.



You have a master in chemistry or natural sciences. You are an excellent scientist with creative ideas, fascinated to develop and apply analytical methods. You have strong technical skills and an affinity for multidisciplinary cooperation. You are fluent in spoken and written English and have good knowledge of German.
